    I assume this is for the outer two chainrings? If so you'll need double bolts, unless you have removed the outer ring. In that case (where you are securing the middle chainring only) you'll need single bolts, which are slightly shorter.

    That being said, check Universal Cycles: Universal Cycles -- Shimano Chainring Bolts

    You should be able to get the exact match for what you have now (XT model 770 perhaps?), as long as you are staying with 3 chain rings.

    I forgot to mention - I'd recommend installing chainring bolts using Loctite 243.
